Today was a good day for cleaning up the shop and getting ready for 2012 and the projects in store.

Last week we installed the last bench on the back porch (picked it up out of the garage shop and carried it to the back porch, then set it down, but “installed” sounds so much more … official ) and it looks great. The next big project is to put together a table with a type of pivoting insert (a design I’m still working on ) so people can walk through to get to the other side rather than having to scoot around on the benches. I likes a challenge!

Spent the day getting chores done for the workshop; traded out the power strip I was using for the tablesaw cabinet for something with a little more … body to it. Picked up a woodburning kit and a linked belt for the table saw. I’m looking forward to that install!

Larger, more appropriate wheels on the drill press cabinet (what a difference!), and some wiring taming.

And somewhere in there a trip to the Y.

What a day.

As I sit here typing, I want to thank all of you on Lumberjocks, who have helped inspire me to take up this hobby that I find both relaxing AND rewarding. The stuff that some of you do are beyond the ken of my simple wishes, for now, but I am always amazed at the things that come across the interwebs, and the great ideas and realizations thereof. It is inspiring; all of it.

I too am inspired by the scope of “All things LJ”. The people, the projects, the workshop solutions & jigs…....
